Introducción:

Protecting applications that are accessible via the Web requires well-prepared security professional who are at all time aware of current attack methods and trends. Plethora of technologies and environments exist that allow comfortable development of Web applications (like Java, ASP.NET or PHP). One should not only be aware of the security issues relevant to these platforms, but also of all general vulnerabilities that apply regardless of the used development tools.

The course gives an overview of the applicable security solutions in Web applications, focusing on the most important technologies like secure communication and Web services, tackling both transport-layer security and end-to-end security solutions and standards like Web Services Security.

The Web-based vulnerabilities are demonstrated through presenting the relevant attacks, while the recommended coding techniques and mitigation methods are explained to avoid the associated problems. Exercises can be easily followed by programmers using different programming languages, thus the Web application-related topics can be easily combined with other secure coding subjects, and can thus effectively satisfy the needs of corporate development groups, who typically deal with various languages and development platforms to develop Web applications.
